A Firm Favorite Amongst South African Outdoor Folk

The Wolf Pack has been around for some time, mine is easily over 20 years old, yet they just keep on going. Occasionally after lending them out, I have to replace a clip ( available at good outdoor shops), despite warning that one must open all 4 clips before lifting the lid off. I have never ever measured the exact size but my high-top versions are around  35 + litres with the low top versions being around 31 litres. Big enough for a variety of options without breaking ones back. Mine have seen duty carrying books and magazines for a trip, toys, groceries and even all the plates and utensils one needs for an extended trip away.

You can even use them to pack clothes – simply put the clothing in large zip-lock bags, expel the air and you have a wardrobe. Thanks to the grooved lids and base they stack atop each other and do not slide around if properly secured when off-road.

They are tough being made from HDPE, yet are useful around camp, stand on them to load things, sit on them or even use them as a low table to serve drinks or prep food (with a suitable board otherwise things could fall).

They pack nicely on roof racks, some even having retention devices to keep them in place. They will not survive a storm so I keep mine in a bag and have closed the tiny holes in the base with duct tape, to stop dust and water getting in.

The various fitment centres stock a variety of accessories and even padded inserts for storing sensitive items. I just love the design, functionality and durability. In fact, I always keep one packed with important bits and pieces for a trip as well as using one as my bush kitchen.
